EndNote: Intro

A guide to using EndNote, your new favorite citation manager!

EndNote Guide

Welcome to Gumberg Library's EndNote Guide. EndNote's citation management software is a useful tool for organizing references and creating bibliographies. It is available for free to all Duquesne University users.

Not sure if EndNote is for you? Watch this introductory video to find out how EndNote can be used in your research!

In this demo, learn how to add references from popular databases; and how to organize, share, and edit your references.


EndNote has many features that will assist you during the research project, including:

  • Downloading citations from our databases
  • Creating bibliographies in over 5,000 styles
  • Generating in-text citations within your Word document
  • Attaching full text articles to your citations
  • Annotating attached PDFs
  • Syncing references to access from any computer
  • Sharing references with other users

Find Full Text Setup

NOTE: Due to a system-wide technical issue, the Find Full Text feature is not currently working. EndNote is aware of this problem and we hope to see a resolution soon.

You must setup your Find Full Text preferences in order to search our databases. This will allow EndNote to automatically search for and find the full text or articles, and attach them to your citations.

PC Users: Go to Edit > Preferences > Find Full Text

Mac Users: Go to EndNote > Preferences > Find Full Text
